SportsGuy,

Trucking is typically though as a rating for a big power back ie Brandon Jacobs, Michael Turner etc. They literally will RUN defenders over when they come into contact. These HB's typically fall FORWARD when making contact. (HB's)


Elusiveness is a rating use for quicker more agile backs IE Reggie Bush, Darren Sproles etc. They will SLIP out of tackles and look to juke & jive away from pressure. (HB's and WR's)

BC Vision is soley a CPU rating. It is when a player has the ball in there hands. Its how the CPU ball carrier sees holes and runnings lanes. (HB's)

Impact Blocking is a rating for players making BIG TIME blocks - laying a pancake when it matters most. They may not be sound and make blocks all the time but they have shown the ability in the past to make the GAME BREAKING block! (offensive linemen, TE, and fullbacks)

Power Move is a pure bull rush by a defensive player looking to attack the QB. Think of a player like Ngata (DT from the Ravens) he doesnt use speed or quickness to get after the QB he pushes the offensive line back into the face of the QB (important for defensive linemen and linebackers)

Finnesse Move - Think Dwight Freeny and Rober Mathis. They use speed off the edge and quick cuts to get after the QB. Mix your Dline with finnesse players on the edge and power plays in the middle! (important for defensive linemen and linebackers)

Pursuit - this is how well your CPU defenders take ANGLES toward the ball carrier. Sometimes they take the pythgron thereom (shortest distance between 2 points) and sometimes they may go rogue. High pursuit ratings is IMPORTANT! (all defenders)

Hit Power - this might be my favorite rating on the defensive side of the ball. This is how hard a player will hit there opponent. This rating causes the most fumbles when used correctly. (linebackers and safeties)

Press - this rating is for how well your cornerbacks will play bump n run off the line of scrimmage. the higher hte better - ie charles woodson. (corner backs)

Re: Ratings Question..

Thank You Both!!!!!!!
I really want to redo the Caplords teams as I said before..
I will redo the 85 Bears and cant wait to see how they charge after I put a rating of 99 on the lineman and Linebackers.. THATS the 85 Bears or the 00 Ravens..
...........
Oh ,, I have Madden 10 PS3.. I am a CPU vs CPU guy and wonder,, is it worth getting madden11?
Are all the fields still the same? or Does the Dome fields look like they should--turf? I cant tell from the videos tho the players seem to run more smooth, like they do in real life not like in 10 where they seem to run like robots..

Thanks again!

actually if you give a guy like Tim Tebow a high trucking rating he'll use that rating aswell....

it really applies to all players but it benefits the higher rated players the most.

I was messing with it on my NCAA rosters and gave Tommy Frazier a 90+ truck rating and sure enough he tried to run over DB's on option plays

I'm going to try it with my re-created William Fridge Perry and see what happens when he lines up at FB during games

Re: Ratings Question..

Also Ball Carrier Vision is not solely a CPU rating, it helps open holes for the runningback when you are controlling him. As for a CPU is helps the CPU run through the open holes.

I don't think this is right. I do believe the CPU uses this rating only.

Regardless, this is another great example of how EA has forgotten to explain how madden actually works. there is way too much confusion as to how ratings really determine outcomes, etc... this is why people think there is stuff like comeback AI and pre-scripted results.

obviously the manual has been a joke for years, but they should AT LEAST put together a comprehensive guide online to help their customers out.
